Sports Illustrated special issue has odd omission

si75years001-250Just got my mail, which includes a 68-page Sports Illustrated special edition on the 75 years of the NCAA Basketball Tournament.

There’s one oddity, however.

There’s not a single Kentucky picture in the issue.

Oh, there’s a small picture of the Christian Laettner shot, of course. That’s it.

To be fair, the issue deals more with the tournament’s great players over the years — Jerry West, Oscar Robertson, Christian Laettner, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Bill Walton, Lew Alcindor, Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Bradley Bill Russell — than it does with great teams.

But eight titles and no pictures?
